The American Hiking Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving hiking trails around the country, is once again holding their annual celebration of trails -- and all glorious aspects of our beloved brain-clearing, getting-back-to-nature exercise -- with their National Trails Day series of events.
This year, the celebration takes place on Saturday, June 6th.

- 8 a.m., a hike from the Griffith Observatory parking lot to the Hollywood Sign.
- 8 a.m., at Seal Beach, a morning hike is taking place at the Los Cerritos Wetlands.
